Went to the swatt meet one weekend. Never notice this guy had a truck converted in to a giant! humidor on wheels. Pretty cool, even carried Padron cigars. I thought I would try this one cause he said it was a nice smoke but will kick you in the ass. not to sure about this one yet have to try it again. Don't really care too much for a boxed pressed cigar, feels like I'm smoking a snickers. I think he did a nice job blending the different flavors together but need to work on the construction a bit more cause mine was loose and it burned too fast to even taste it.

"These 1990 Vintages Rock! Atta boy Rocky!"
1990 Vintage Robusto - Oh so sweet. Just delicious, good draw and burn, multi flavors. Don't need liquor or coffee to make this a good smoke, it is by itself. The smoke is very aromatic and will turn heads, well mine at least. A Buddy lit one up on the bow of my sailboat, the wind drifted the smoke down to me, and hoo-boy, made me reach quickly into my jacket for mine. You know how your mouth starts to water when you smell a good cigar. That's what the 1990 Rocky did to me.

"Hard to Beat"
I've read some neg reviews about bad burn. Personally I haven't had that experience with these cigars, but I have run into others that require 3-6 months of humi time to straighten out.
Not good if you're wanting to enjoy one the day it arrives.
But, if I had to choose one Rocky cigar, it would be this one. Based on all the factors, appearance, burn, draw, taste, construction, wrapper, price........I haven't seen a cigar yet that beats it.

"Used to be good"
Had 10 out of 2 different boxes all had a terrible draw. Even with Humi time. Rocky's cigars are hit or miss lately and what's up with the 20 cigars per box? Why can't we get 25 per box like other makers or the old days?

"Delightful, full flavor, well made"
Wonderful Rocky. Begins spicy and dry. Half-inch down it gets delightful to the end - draws smooth & full, not overly spicy, kinda earthy, nice even burn. An atta-boy for this Rocky!

It started off with a hint off sweetnes. As i got through there was a little bit of a chemical taste to it that went away very quickly. It burned almost perfectly throughout. As I got near the end it was not too spicy or too ashy in flavor. I really didn't want to put it out. The buzz was very constant throughout instead of being very strong at first and leaving you with a crash. I had only left it in my humidor for a week. I have 20 more which i will try to mature a little longer and see how the flavor goes. One of the best cigars I have smoked in my lifetime. Very good choice for beginners and experts. PEACE

"10s across the board!"
An absolute great smoke, no complaints whatsoever. Great draw, superb flavor, excellent value. This is my all time fave. Youve tried the rest, now try the best. If ya really want to treat yourself, try a RP Old World Reserve, hands down the greatest smoke Ive ever had!
